On Friday, I visited my local H&M store to check out the new pants collection, pick up some new maternity duds and drop off a bag of clothes to be recycled. In case you missed it, all H&M stores now offer garment recycling collection services and when you bring in a bag of clothes, you get a 15% off coupon good for the item of your choice. I teamed up with H&M to help get this message out and you can see the video I created here. But aside from that, as a customer, I just wanted to see if my local store was actually participating and I was so glad that yes, they are! The process was really simple, just drop off your clothes at the checkout and get your coupon. Easy peasy. I asked the store employee how big each bag should be and he didn't seem to know, so I think if you filled a regular size plastic shopping bag from the grocery store or a reusuable tote, you'd be good to go. You can bring up to two bags per day.
Moving on...I ogled lots of fab spring pieces that I can't actually wear since I'm preggers. You would think you could just size up in things but that hasn't been working too well for me. LOL. Oh well. I'm loving all the print pants, bold floral prints and pretty pastels. Silver heels and coral accessories also caught my eye on this trip, two affordable ways to update your wardrobe for spring.
I'll share my maternity finds in another post, which included a striped tee, navy skinnies and a coral cardigan (technically not maternity but it fit well).
Have you tried out H&M's recycling program yet? Picked up any new spring items?
